Who Makes These Laws??

On a whim, I was looking at the Dumb Laws In Washington website this morning and found a couple relating to cars and bikes. I didn't confirm these because its just for fun and everything on the internet is true, isn't it?

For instance, the site says that it is illegal to spit on a bus in Seattle and state law says no person may walk about in public if he or she has the common cold. I see a lot of people being cited for that one.

The Bizarre Driving Laws website also had some interesting content such as it being illegal to drive while blindfolded in Alabama (thank goodness!) and it's unlawful to transport dead poultry along Kansas Avenue in Topeka, Kansas. Who would have known.

With the grey day outside, I just thought you might need a grin.
